Easy question: ball size

What's the ball size need for a 1979 31' Landyacht?

Never had one, but...

I'd say 2 5/16 ball, but I've never had one to say for sure.... Good luck!

Along the same line of questioning, what do you guys use to lock the tongue down? Can a small padlock be used or do you just use some sort of cotter pin?

You can use a hitch pin which local RV stores and even some auto parts stores carry. I use a padlock, just to slow down the casual thief.

I'd rather use a small padlock as well, just didn't know if it fit through there.

I believe that it is a 1/4" hole, so most padlocks should fit.

I have a latch lock, from Master. The way it is built, there is virtually no lock shaft exposed to be cut, so a would-be thief would have to have a Modo-sized set of bolt cutters to remove it. It keeps the latch locked while towing, too.
